16 Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel,
and cast him into the den of lions.
Now the king spake and said unto Daniel,
Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee.
17 And a stone was brought and laid upon the mouth of the den;
and the king sealed it with his own signet, and with the signet of
his lords; that the purpose might not be changed concerning Daniel.
18 Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting:
neither were instruments of musick brought before him:
and his sleep went from him.
19 Then the king arose very early in the morning,
and went in haste unto the den of lions.
20 And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice
unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel,
servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually,
able to deliver thee from the lions?
21 Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.
22 My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths,
that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency
was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Did you ever think about the SAFEST PLACE on earth
for a Christian?
With man, there IS no such place!
But with GOD, ANY place will do!
Daniel took a stand.
He would not bow down to idols!
He would only worship the Lord God.
He preferred to spend the night with lions than to miss his prayer time!
Daniel KNEW God's WORD!
Daniel actually slept better in the lion's den, than the king did
in his big ole bed!!
How many of us, like Daniel are surrounded by "lions?"
There are lions all about Christians today.
There's the lion that says if you don't allow homosexuals equal
marriage rights, then you must be prejudiced and filled with bigotry.
Then there's the lion that says the fetus is just a piece of flesh:
abortion is not really murder.
And if you say it IS murder, then you must be a totally uneducated idiot!
Then there's the lion that says alcohol should be sold
ANY time, ANY place!
And if you say that's wrong, you must be a Bible thumper
or "one of them church-goers!
Do you, Christian, not have the SAME PROMISES of GOD?
I don't know about you, but I'm praying God will
SHUT THE MOUTHS OF THE LIONS!!
Stand firmly on God's promises!
Speak boldly of moral integrity!
No matter WHERE you are,
the WILL of GOD is the SAFEST place!
